Village Burger Coming to Tucker

 Village Burger plans to open a new location in Tucker later this summer.  The restaurant, which replaces The Tucker Fountain on Main Street in downtown Tucker, will be the third location for the local restaurant.  The original Village Burger opened in place of a former Bruster's in Dunwoody in 2010. A second Village Burger opened in Johns Creek during the summer of 2014 in a former Yoforia.

Decatur Beach Party now called Summer in the City . . . Where Beach Meets the Street.

  WHEN: Friday, June 16 • 5-11 p.m.

What do you get when you combine the Decatur Beach Party, a cultural community festival, and the Brick Store Pub’s 20th anniversary? An exciting, beach-themed, performance-rich celebration, now known as Summer in the City . . . Where Beach Meets the Street. Come and celebrate this new take on the annual Decatur Beach Party, featuring pop-up cultural performances, a special Brick Store anniversary cake, and much, much more. Admission is free to the community.
Old Favorites
The event will bring back some Beach Party favorites, including the 60 tons of sand, kids activities, and a wall for rock climbing. A rockin’ band, Bogey and the Viceroy, will perform live from the stage on the MARTA plaza beginning at 8 p.m. The band consists of New Orleans native Bogey Thornton and the troubadours of The Viceroy, an eight-piece band covering classic soul from every era, along with retro rock/pop and today’s current chart-toppers.     
Pop-Up Performances
A variety of pop-up performances, artists and activities will include the Apu Inka Peruvian Band, MBond Afrika African Dance Group – plus stilt walking, fire twirling, sidewalk chalk art, and more. DJ Quasi Mandisco will spin records and direct attendees to the various festivities as they pop up.
Three Taverns Beer and Funnel Cakes
The event will include plenty of funnel cakes, kettle corn and other carnival food for sale. Beer from Three Taverns, wine and soft drinks will be available as well. All the restaurants will be open for business and many will serve special Summer in the City menus.
The Gates Are Gone
Traditionally the Decatur Beach Party, as the Decatur Business Association’s annual fundraiser, was a ticketed and gated event. This year, thanks to our sponsors, the gates are gone, entrance is free, and the program has expanded to include more performances and activities. There may be some charges for a few of the activities such as the rock climbing wall and souvenirs such as light wands. Visit the Decatur Beach Party Facebook page for more information.
